A new survey shows that 33% of women over the age of 40 are concerned enough about aging that they’d consider plastic surgery. In fact, 20% of women between 40 and 60 say they’d be happy to get a face lift if money were no object. Of those surveyed, the average woman thinks the best time to have plastic surgery is at the age of 52.

We at Reflections Center in New Jersey soundly disagreenot because we want you to have more procedures, but because we know that the sooner you start treating your skin, the better you can avoid sagging and wrinkling and the other signs of skin aging such as brown and red spots, uneven texture and tone.

It’s an “old” way of looking at cosmetic enhancements to think one should sit idly by while Mother Nature and Father Time take their toll on our appearance. Taking care of yourself in terms of an excellent diet that’s low in refined foods plus exercise and the occasional microdermabrasion, nip & tuck or skin treatment can save years from your appearance.

Put it this way: if you had a beautiful, new automobile, you wouldn’t drive it 50,000 miles before maintaining it, would you? Your appearance is similar. Regular “maintenance” has its rewards: a beautiful face and body that adds life to your years, no matter how many you enjoy beyond the age of 52.
